Artist's Description

A partial shot of the north span of the Forth Bridge and the island of Inchgarvie (or Inch Garvie) at South Queensferry, Scotland.

Inchgarvie contains the remains of a castle, coast battery and artillery fortifications.

Famously during WWII, the Germans published a blurry aerial photograph showing the Rail bridge and what they claimed was a plume of smoke from a direct hit on the bridge. Of course they had missed and mistook Inch Garvie for the smoke.

The name ‘Inch Garvie’ is probably originally of Gaelic derivation, meaning ‘rough island’.

Related shots can be found at: South Queensferry and Bridges.
